Study 2018-13 (HSR) Model for measuring and monitoring waiting times for medical consultations and scheduled interventions in Belgium

Ongoing study - The evaluation of the performance of a healthcare system encompasses  the assessment of several dimensions. One of them is waiting time for care. Until now, waiting times are not monitored in Belgium. However, inadequate waiting times can affect mortality, morbidity and patients’ quality of life, the satisfaction of the public and the costs for a healthcare system and the patients. In this project we will develop a waiting time monitoring system for Belgium, with a focus on hospital care.
